Bio Carolina Mello is a biologist in love with her profession, which she considers a mission of life. She has been working with environmental education for nature’s conservation and this made her also understand life through the lenses of deep ecology. She is now a collaborator of the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Research (CENSE), doing her PhD in Environmental and Sustainability at NOVA University Lisbon. She is conducting her research in the direction of sustainable wellbeing in higher education institutions. Guided by the main question “How to integrate holistic learning approaches and nature-based solutions into higher education institutions”, her research aims to rethink HEI structures and foster holistic forms of teaching and learning that can help increase personal and planetary wellbeing.
